Comments from Our Runners
“Thank you so much to you and the team for another great event! What a fantastic day and as usual the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team hospitality was top notch!”
“I feel privileged to have been part of this event. You did such a great job taking care of us and helping me along. Many thanks to the volunteers and runners for all of your encouragement and kind words!”
‘Thanks SO much for such a terrific day, event AND photographs! :)’
“I wanted to thank you again for a truly exceptional experience!
Of my 370 endurance events, your has surpassed all in terms of the after-event camaraderie and food!
I really enjoyed having the opportunity to sit and talk with this group of outstanding athletes. I virtually never eat right after endurance runs, but this food was most wonderfully enjoyable.
It's amazing to me that this event is not simply swamped with participants! I guess that is part of the charm!”
“Thanks again for a great race on Saturday! I had a lot of fun. :) “
“What a great event! I hope you’ll reiterate our thanks to all the volunteer angels who applauded, cheered, motivated and kept track of all of us. They sat their all day in the wind and the rain, while we had the advantage to keep moving. It will be great to see the pictures and all the results. Hats off and thanks to you all for an organized and fun run”
“Thank you so much to the team for a lovely event Sunday. It was great to run a Sri Chinmoy event again as when I lived in Ontario I would normally have 2 Sri Chinmoy events on the schedule per year. Great course and as always the volunteers, post run meal and support were top notch.”
“I just wanted to give you some positive feedback from the run on Sunday. You and your helpers made all the difference for me in finishing the race. My wife and I were also touched by the philosophy and positive energy. We wish we could have met Master Chinmoy in person but you folks have continued the wave very successfully!”
